Ohlsson's Cape Breweries

The Ohlsson's Cape Breweries was a South African brewing company located in Newlands, Cape Town.[1] It was founded around 1881 by a Swedish immigrant and industrialist, Anders Ohlsson.[2] Ohlsson's was bought out by Castle Breweries and merged to form South African Breweries in 1956.[3][4][5] South African Breweries continued to sell locally produced beer under the Ohlsson's brand until its discontinuation in the late 1990s.[6]
